The Ministry of the interior wants more powers for intelligence services

The interior Ministry wants to give the intelligence services, by law more powers of Surveillance. The draft, which is the ARD-capital Studio , contains points, the refusal of the SPD to be strictly.

Already for a long time complain to the news services that they are no longer in the communication monitoring on the amount of time. So communication is often encrypted messenger services such as WhatsApp or Telegram. To be able to read here, it is necessary to come in front of or behind the encryption - or with other words: the device that is being communicated.

This so-called source telecommunication surveillance is only possible with the help of a Trojan. This also needs to be for a Online search, if you behavior, the Internet, saved documents and photos on a Computer in the eye want to take, without the person Concerned knowing it.

warnings came mostly from abroad,

A legal basis for this has, so far, under the Federal safety authorities, the Federal criminal police office, but not the protection of the Constitution. An intolerable situation, argues the domestic intelligence service, for example, if it is a matter of attack planning something.

in fact, the crucial warnings in the last years of the German intelligence services, but from abroad.

Federal interior Minister Seehofer wants to give the protection of the Constitution for more powers of Surveillance.

A previously well-kept bill from the Federal Ministry of the interior, before the ARD-capital Studio exclusive, is now to provide a remedy: The constitutional protection of the law should be changed, and the domestic intelligence service to equip with this intervention.

For the Federal intelligence service, the Whole process should be changed the same as the BND, for example, in the case of German jihadists in Syria in front of the same Problem. For such interventions, the services should have a permit from the G10 Commission of the Bundestag.

the age limit for data acquisition.

in addition to these technical powers, the draft law provides for more serious Changes For the protection of the Constitution are particularly important: in the Future, it should be according to the will of the Federal Ministry of the interior no age limit for people allowed to enter the protection of the Constitution in its files. She is at the age of 14.

This age limit is to be abolished according to the draft law without replacement. Justification, reference is made to the case of a twelve-year-old in 2016, had tried to perpetrate a bomb attack on the Christmas market in Ludwigshafen, as well as on the possibly indoctrinated children of German jihadists to Syria left the country and now returned to Germany, or already returned.

of The Plan: The decoupling of both laws

the BND-law is to be changed in Parts.

in Principle, large parts of the Constitution, be taken protection act. At the same time, clarifications BND be made to the law in many Places on the protection of the Constitution act refers.

according to reports, it is hoped that a decoupling of the two laws. The draft law contains its own rules to the source of the leadership of the BND abroad, because the recruitment of foreign Whistleblowers in crisis regions, different conditions prevail than in Germany for the protection of the Constitution.

the minimum age for BND that is, there are sources of 16 years and not 18 years. During the so-called people of the constitutional protection may not be solely dependent on the money for their spy services, there is no such restriction for the sources of the BND.

rejection, especially in the case of a point

in Principle, the BND has in the application of its foreign sources is largely a free Hand. The existing arrangements for V-people of the constitutional protection of the bill untouched.

Currently, the draft law is in the interministerial coordination within the Federal government. In fact, the draft includes points that are not foreseeable for the SPD acceptable. So the SPD has rejected it so far is strictly to remove the age limit for persons who may be saved by the protection of the Constitution.

According to information from the ARD capital studios made the social-circles that are concerned with the bill, reject the social Democrats, the plans therefore, in this Form. According to reports, it is even conceivable that the plans will disappear in the drawer.

The draft contained everything that you have already been rejected in the last amendment to the protection of the Constitution act, it says. None of this was agreed in the coalition agreement.
